Denny's BVIP calls for an addition of Bourbon back to the beerThat's an excellent idea, I love it! I got a bottle of the bourbon that was in the barrel (well, same batch anyway) so I can add some of that back. I think BVIP just moved up the recipe list.
so with that, you could try to match the keg's contents and if
you found the oak character dwindling lower than you like,
you could always add back some spirals or cubes...but you could just
go for the wood exposure in your keg and think lengthy time...and you would
definately have a winner.
And yes, it is 100 grams of flour mixture to 1 egg in a 50 / 50 mix of semolina and white flour. Dunno how 100 grams corresponds in volumetric measure, but it worked out so well I probably will never find out
Just out of curiosity, how long would it be viable in the fridge before I had to throw it out?
I agree....I love Horizon for bittering but not so much for aroma.
Every description I read says it's resiny, candy-like, floral. Sounds perfect for aroma! I've used it only once in a beer. It was single hopped, but it was a super dark beer, so the hops didn't even come through.
Making the dough was a cinch, I used Denny's 50/50 - 100 grams and 1 egg per person methodology.I'm having trouble parsing this. You used yeast in your pasta? 50-100 grams of what?
Sometimes a different yeast strain is used to bottle condition commercial beers, so you may not be getting what the source beer used in its primary. I'm not sure about Chimay...Just realize this is a possibility. It's probably still worth a try.
Don't think it's my thermometer. I use the therma pen I have for cooking. Will definitely look at a refractometer and pick up some pH strips. Appreciate all the responses!
What is the best way to measure pH? Does everyone have a meter? Does litmus paper work just as well?
For batch sparge (or fly for that matter) wouldn't you run into problems with stuck sparge possibly if the grain bed doesn't set properly before the flow rate opens up? Of course that'd mean that's faster than the system would allow technically...
